Cacao Fruit Puree (Palo Santo)
About the farmJust a sea breeze away from the Ecuadorian coast, a family-owned plantation has been perfecting its cacao production for three generations. While Esteban Jr. manages a deliberate post-harvest process that’s been refined over the years by his father, inside, you’ll find Maria and Claudia handling the business side of this bustling and innovative farm.
About the PartnershipWe’ve supported their expansion from a family farm into a modernized operation that’s bringing their passion for cacao to the world. Through access, logistics, and marketing, we further their message that cacao is beautiful in every form, from its decorative pods, to its delicious pulp, to its beans that become the chocolate we all adore.
